UC Berkeley Launches 'Foundations of Data Science' Certificate Program on edX

January 25, 2018

UC Berkeley's Division of Data Sciences and edX have recently announced that Berkeley's popular Foundations of Data Science course will be available online this spring as a Foundations of Data Science Professional Certificate Program.

This new online program will enable a public audience to think critically about data, to interpret and communicate results, and to consider the social implications of data-driven research. By integrating data-driven methods with domain knowledge to answer a broad range of questions, the courses will help students analyze and understand a diverse array of real-world data sets including economic data, geographic data and social networks.

Students need only a browser and a desire to learn — no prior statistics, computer science or programming experience is required or expected, and all computational analysis will be done seamlessly in the cloud.

Currently configured as a sequence of three 5-week courses, the new certificate program is being taught by award winning Berkeley faculty Ani Adhikari, John Denero, and David Wagner.
